Kelly works in our school as an aide and she is going to school to be a teacher. She's working on observation in my room for math and science. Today she taught math class for the first time. Sh had a fun math activity where the kids made flowers and used Skittles to help make number sentences.
Students count the Skittles that are in the individual baggies and then write the count inside the center of the flower.
Students use the Skittles to organize into groups to make number sentences. For example: If the student has 18 Skittles a number sentence could be 9+9 or 4+5+9 and so forth.
Kelly did an excellent job today and she's going to be a fantastic teacher!
